Watch: Roy Keane Doesn't Hold Back At "Shocking" England Defending Against Belgium

During England's defeat to Croatia, one tweet that this writer remembers read "I enjoy Roy Keane being on the panel. It’s like a Samuel Beckett character has wandered in and he’s about to mutter: “Yes, there is football but there is also death'".

It is in this realm of nihilism that Keane wanders again today, taking up residence on ITV for England's third-place playoff against Belgium. England trailed 1-0 at halftime, thanks to a goal from Belgian wingback Thomas Meunier.

The goal, perhaps, owed a bit to the slack defending of Danny Rose.

On ITV at half time, Keane analysed the goal and slipped easily into his role as England Tormentor-in-chief.

England gave a shocking goal away. Sloppy, lazy defending. Really lazy defending. When you look at Rose's defending on top of the centre-half's, he's never going to learn about the game. At 28 years of age...he's in trouble.
